Welcome to Casa de Risa- “House of Laughter”

This intimate vacation paradise features Italian tile work, high end finishes, architectural inflexion, custom furniture, on-site laundry facilities, bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs, infinity pool and gated parking.

From the moment you set foot in the door you are greeted with an impressive entryway featuring vaulted ceilings, custom Italian tile work and architectural arches. The main hallway runs the length of the house allowing easy access to all rooms as well as a spacious ambiance.

All bedrooms feature large windows to enjoy by day and black-out drapery to enjoy by night. There is an abundance of custom designed closet space and beautiful floor-to-ceiling tile en-suite bathrooms. En-suite bathrooms feature showers, ample cabinet and drawer storage and large mirrors.

The bright kitchen is a delight to work in. It is furnished with stainless steel appliances, glass cook top with oven/microwave, side-by-side refrigerator and wine/beer mini refrigerator. The large center island is a dream to prepare food on. The service breakfast bar and granite counter tops complete this fully equipped cooking space.

The stunning dining room overlooks the living room and the kitchen. It is furnished with a custom made hardwood farmer’s table (seating 8-10). The dining and living room boasts of floor- to-ceiling windows. A splash of free flowing drapery allows for sophistication yet visual pool ambiance.

Our living room/dining room area features vaulted ceilings with bamboo accents. There is plenty of space to relax on the couch or one of the cozy chairs. If the amazing Costa Rican outdoors cannot provide you enough entertainment, the flat screen TV, DVD player and iPod docking station will.

Our Spanish villa nests in its own mini jungle. The back of the property is bordered by tropical plants and Guanacastecan trees. You will marvel at the Howler Monkeys and the versatility of birds and butterflies. Unwind in the serenity of the outside patio, custom designed infinity pool or simply enjoy the thatched roof palapa which offers a shady place to eat and relax.

Casa de Risa resides in the pulse of Playa Grande National Park… located just one block from the pristine Playa Grande Beach. Playa Grande is known for its world class surf, home of the giant Leather Back Turtle (weighing up to 1,800 lbs and up to 9 ft. long) and its long and wide white sand. The beach stretches approximately 3 miles and yet you will frequent very few people. The ocean is all sand bottom which is perfect for surfing, boogie boarding and swimming. From your beach chair you can soak in 7 miles of stunning ocean and coastline not to mention spectacular sunsets. The tide is extreme and magnificent for walking, running, bike riding and shell collecting. We have enjoyed beautiful walks and bike rides by moon light alone.

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About: We are a family of four that absolutely love beach living. We were fortunate enough to living in the house for 6 months in 2012 and take advantage of all Costa Rica has to offer. Once the kids are off to school, Cheryl and I plan to semi retire in Playa Grande.

                  Why Playa Grande:
                  We search up and down the pacific coastline in Costa Rica before deciding to purchase in Playa Grande. The pristine 2 mile long beach with it sandy bottom and lack of riptides allowed us to feel safe about the kids playing in the water. This is something that cannot be underestimated when living/surfing on a beach with children. Being able to take a 45 minute bike ride on the beach inside a National Park that is home to the leatherback turtles has been icing on the cake!
